Become a Coach!
Whether you love sports or have no sports experience at all, you can become a Special Olympics Colorado coach! Coaches are the key to a successful sports experience for Special Olympics athletes. As a coach, you give Special Olympics athletes the most immediate awareness of their self-worth, ability, courage, and capacity to grow and improve both on the playing field and in life. You will receive information and training necessary (at no cost to you) to become a coach. We offer in-person training sessions throughout the year. Click here to learn more about becoming a coach
